Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Cookies

Chocolate Caramel Pretzel Cookies 
Aren't those cookies absolutely gorgeous?  They look so yummy, however looks can be deceiving.  I was not a fan of these cookies at all with a picture like that I expected WAY more flavor than I got.  One of my kids wouldn't even try them and the others said they didn't like them, my neighbor even said next time to make chocolate chip instead. I will say this makes a huge batch and that the dough itself tastes pretty good.  I think I am going to play with this a little more and see what I can do with it.
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (11-oz.) bag Caramel Bits
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped White Fudge Covered Pretzels (I only had regular pretzels so I used those)
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. Grease baking sheet or line with parchment paper or silicone mat.
    3. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy (about 2 to 3 minutes).
    4. Add eggs and vanilla and beat another 1 to 2 minutes.
    5. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt.
    6. Add to butter mixture and mix until thoroughly combined.
    7. Fold in caramel bits and pretzels.
    8. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto cookie sheets and press slightly to flatten.
    9. Bake for 9 to 10 minutes or until set.
    10.  Allow to cool 5 minutes on cookie sheet before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
